(dailymail) The gun that killed filmmaker Halyna Hutchins was a Colt pistol, has exclusively learned.

Alec Baldwin was handling the vintage gun on the set of Rust in Santa Fe, New Mexico, when it accidentally discharged – killing Hutchins, 42, and wounding director Joel Souza.

According to a call sheet obtained by, Baldwin was taking part in a mock gunfight inside the church building on the Bonanza Ranch film set when Hutchins was hit.

Co-stars Jensen Ackles, Swen Temmel and Travis Hammer were also in the scene – numbered 121 - alongside Baldwin’s stunt double Blake Teixeira and stunt coordinator Allan Graf.

Production notes show the Colt pistol was one of several weapons on set at the time but the only one used in 121 and the preceding 118.

Filming had been due to continue with a scene that showed Baldwin being thrown into a stagecoach but it was halted following the accident.

Further scenes featuring Baldwin and Ackles had been scheduled for today and over the weekend but have now been postponed indefinitely.

GRA: Jensen Ackles, who was in one of the best series of the last 25 years (Supernatural) is mentioned as being a co-star of the movie Rust. Supernatural had a recurring theme about the original Colt pistol having the power to kill anything—alive or dead.

Not the original, but still...

See if you can buy it. It will probably have worth as a collectible.
